While the SU candidates in the back are waiting for the results, the ballot count continues

 

On Nov. 9 and 10, elections for the Student Union of POSTECH (SU) and Female Student Union (FSU) were held. As a result of the ballot count, campaign Ak-bo (sheet music)’s Lee Ho-hyeong (MSE 14) and his running mate Choi Myeong-hwan (IME 15), were elected president and vice president of the SU respectively. Since this election was composed of a single candidate only, it was carried out by calling for yeas and nays. According to the official total of counted ballots, the total amount of voters for the SU was 552. 487 voted in favor, 50 were against, and 12 submitted blank ballots. The turnout of voters was 41.09% and the difference between the notional number of votes and the total number of votes is 3, recording a 0.55% error rate. President-elect Lee Ho-young left the following impression. “It was an election with a relatively low turnout. However, as we pledged, we will improve student society, so that voting participation for next year will be higher.”
 For the FSU, campaign Dan-bi (right amount of rain)’s Park Ha-yun (CHEM 17) and her running mate Kim Chae-rim (MSE 17) were elected president and vice president respectively. The total amount of voters for the FSU was 182. A hundred and seventy-two voted in favor, 10 were against, and none submitted blank ballots. The difference between the notional number of votes and the total number of votes is 5, recording a 2.75% error rate.
 The SU ‘Ak-bo’ campaign’s five main pledges were (1) POSTECH’s culture made by students, (2) POSTECH-Yonsei University cooperation led by students, (3) Campus for everyone, (4) A much convenient campus, (5) A sustainable student society.
 They pledged to have regular inspections on illegal micro-cameras, improve bathroom entrances in school, establish a human rights center, and expand facilities for physically challenged people. They also pledged to simplify medical deductions, open the classrooms during exam periods, share Wi-Fi information in the classroom, and make the library more convenient. These may seem as minor pledges, but they are directly linked to students’ lives. Furthermore, they’ve pledged to increase benefits for full members, reinforce the independence of independent finance, expand the budget autonomy system, and support the revision of student council rules.
The FSU ‘Dan-bi’ campaign’s two main pledges were (1) More passionate FSU and (2) More practical FSU. They pledged to hold campaigns for the promotion of women’s rights, improve and invigorate FSU supporters, and continue issuing the FSU newsletter ‘Yeo-bo-se-yo’. Furthermore, they pledged to enable anonymous reporting channels, continue the work of activating female students’ physical education, and carry out women’s welfare concerns. It seems that the current FSU plans to continue with most of the activities led by the former FSU.
